I tell you, you've got nothing

to worry about.

00:
01:59,686 -- 00:02:01,586

- The plane is perfectly safe.

- Can I have -

00:
02:01,688 -- 00:02:04,680

- It ran a little low on gas when it got

into all that fog, that's all.

- Thank you.

02:04,791 -- 00:02:07,760

So they had to set down in -

Give me that one again, Max.

00:
02:07,861 -- 00:02:10,728

A rooster? Oh, Aroostook.

7

00:
02:10,830 -- 00:02:15,130

Aroostook. And where is Aroostook

supposing to be it shouldn't happen?

8

00:
02:15,235 -- 00:02:16,964

It's in the general neighborhood

of Nova Scotia.

00:
02:17,070 -- 00:02:20,062

And from this general neighborhood,

maybe you can tell me...

02:20,173 -- 00:02:23,472

how tonight at philharmonic

he is a concert conducting?

11

00:
02:23,576 -- 00:02:25,567

By "telewision, " I am presuming.

12

00:
02:25,678 -- 00:02:27,976

Is it a very bad fog?

13

00:
02:28,081 -- 00:02:30,743

- Make him tell me the truth, Hugo.

- Of course it ain't.

14

00:
02:30,850 -- 00:02:33,785

- Don't worry, honey.

-[ Man ] It's hardly a fog at all, madam.

15

00:
02:33,887 -- 00:02:36,253

It's - It's more of a mist, really.

More of a -

16

00:
02:36,356 -- 00:02:39,689

- Yes, Max?

-Just something to make the engines run better.

17

00:
02:39,792 -- 00:02:41,783

- Don't worry, darling.

- Correction, please.

18

00:
02:41,895 -- 00:02:44,921

- [ Woman ] What is it?

- It was not Aroostook. It was Antigonish.

19

00:
02:45,031 -- 00:02:47,829

And where is this mudhole,

if I ain't too optimistic?

20

00:
02:47,934 -- 00:02:50,459

In the general neighborhood

of Nova Scotia, I believe.

21

00:
02:50,570 -- 00:02:53,437

- [ Hugo ] What a neighborhood.

- Hugo, do try to find out.

22

00:
02:53,540 -- 00:02:55,440

- Correction, please.

- Shh.

23

00:
02:55,542 -- 00:02:57,908

It turns out it wasn't Antigonish after all.

24

00:
02:58,011 -- 00:03:01,003

It was Apohaqui.

And it didn't get there, it left there.

25

00:
03:01,114 -- 00:03:04,106

- Apohaqui!

- Then where is it now?

26

00:
03:04,217 -- 00:03:06,845

In the general neighborhood of Nova Scotia.

Where else?

27

00:
03:06,953 -- 00:03:08,853

[ Man ]

Far, far from it, my friend.

28

00:
03:08,955 -- 00:03:11,515

As a matter of fact, there it is, coming in...

29

00:
03:11,624 -- 00:03:13,524

- Hooray!

- directly behind you right now.

30

00:
03:13,626 -- 00:03:16,959

- What an airline.

- There is one reassuring thing about airplanes...

31

00:
03:17,063 -- 00:03:19,793

- they always come down.

- Come on, stupid.

32

00:
03:19,899 -- 00:03:22,493

[ Bell Dings ]

33

00:
03:22,602 -- 00:03:26,834

[ Hugo ] Am I glad to see you, Alfie .

Again Wolfgang is sick.

34

00:
03:26,940 -- 00:03:30,706

So our concert got to be shoved up.

Tonight we are giving it yet.

35

00:
03:30,810 -- 00:03:32,710

Did you think of me every night?

36

00:
03:32,812 -- 00:03:34,780

Of course I did, my love.

37

00:
03:34,881 -- 00:03:36,781

Did you take my picture to bed with you?

38

00:
03:36,883 -- 00:03:38,783

Of course I did, my darling.

39

00:
03:38,885 -- 00:03:42,719

Are they kidding? If she wasn't my own sister,

I'd have a name for her that'd make -

40

00:
03:42,822 -- 00:03:44,722

Dream of me after you went to sleep?

41

00:
03:44,824 -- 00:03:47,520

Every single night, my love.

42

00:
03:47,627 -- 00:03:52,530

- Only I - I didn't sleep very well.

- Will somebody get me an ice pack?

43

00:
03:52,632 -- 00:03:54,691

Put 'em back on your nose

and learn something.

Preston Sturges

Preston Sturges (; born Edmund Preston Biden; August 29, 1898 – August 6, 1959) was an American playwright, screenwriter, and film director. In 1941, he won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the film The Great McGinty, his first of three nominations in the category. Sturges took the screwball comedy format of the 1930s to another level, writing dialogue that, heard today, is often surprisingly naturalistic, mature, and ahead of its time, despite the farcical situations. It is not uncommon for a Sturges character to deliver an exquisitely turned phrase and take an elaborate pratfall within the same scene. A tender love scene between Henry Fonda and Barbara Stanwyck in The Lady Eve was enlivened by a horse, which repeatedly poked its nose into Fonda's head. Prior to Sturges, other figures in Hollywood (such as Charlie Chaplin, D.W. Griffith, and Frank Capra) had directed films from their own scripts, however Sturges is often regarded as the first Hollywood figure to establish success as a screenwriter and then move into directing his own scripts, at a time when those roles were separate. Sturges famously sold the story for The Great McGinty to Paramount Pictures for $1, in return for being allowed to direct the film; the sum was quietly raised to $10 by the studio for legal reasons. more…
